Research Facilities


Molecular Beam Epitaxy Laboratory

Location: B115 Gerstacker

The Goldman Group MBE Laboratory contains a modular all-in-situ molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) - scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) - focused ion beam (FIB) system consisting of three interconnected MBE systems dedicated to III-As-N-Bi, III-V-N (i.e. As-free), and transition metal III-Vs.  Each of the MBE systems are outfitted with in-situ characterization tools including reflection high-energy electron diffraction, optical pyrometry, multi-beam optical stress sensing and reflection mass spectroscopy. Within the multi-chamber system, there is an Omicron Associates ultra-high vacuum large-sample STM, with in-situ tip annealing as needed for accurate STS measurements, and an FEI UHV FIB, for all-in-situ sample fabrication.
